Cerebro Muerto


The Brain Dead Collective are a group of like minded Goths and Metallers determined to run decent, fun and friendly events in the Birmingham (UK) area.

On a tangentially related note, it's the Day of the Dead tomorrow. According to The Museum of New Mexico Foundation:
El Dia de los Muertos, held on November 2nd is an important religous holiday in Mexico. Also called All Souls Day, it is an occasion marked by festive celebrations to honor the dead. Cemetaries are cleaned and decorated, special food and candies cooked, and home altars are designed in homage to ones ancestors. It is a day of joyous remembrance, not of sadness. The special songs, poems, foods and Day of the Dead art created for El Dia de los Muertos reflect this outlook.

Sugar skulls are among the ofrendas placed at the graves of dead loved ones, and at altars commemorating them.
